Ingredient Overview: L-tyrosine Posted on April 03, 2016 by , 0 comments
Our blog series continues with profiles of each ingredient found in Body Regime. This week we round out the metabolism supporting ingredients in Body Regime and end with L-tyrosine, a mighty and curious amino acid.*
The Source and history:
L-tyrosine gets its name from cheese, oddly enough. It was first discovered by German chemist, Justus von Liebig in 1854 in a sample of casein, a protein derived from cheese. Tyrosine comes from the Greek word for cheese, tyros. L-tyrosine is one of the 22 amino acids the body uses to synthesize proteins.
L-tyrosine is a hydrophobic, proteinogenic amino acid. It is a precursor to neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine and dopamine. Recent studies have suggested that in addition to helping support a healthy metabolism, L-tyrosine may also help promote cognitive performance and thermogenesis.*
Of course a healthy metabolism is really only one part of the weight management puzzle. Body Regime™ combines L-tyrosine into its complex whole health weight management supplement to help support the body’s natural metabolism and overall muscle health. When combined with other key ingredients that support appetite and mood, weight management goals are more holistically supported.*
